A Charlie Brown Christmas

Two different papers have run major pieces today on A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

One of my favorite Christmas ornaments is a Hallmark glass ball marking the special's 25th anniversary. It doesn't seem possible that's now hung on my tree for 15 years!

One of the things I like best about this Christmas show is that, unlike many other Christmas specials, the Biblical Christmas story plays a significant role. I always find the scene where Linus recites the Christmas story very moving.

Here is the story from The Los Angeles Times.

Update: Mary Katharine Ham, guest blogging at Hugh Hewitt's site, has a nice post on this subject.
